Color is dark purple, smells like dark fruits with hints of burnt/roasted malts. A small head. Great Belgian ester flavor profile balanced beautifully with the dark malts. Despite being over 9% there is absolutely no alcohol flavor. Delicious. Overall seems like a great exemplification of the style.

On tap at the brewery – 06/20/2014
Full pour – 2nd Anny glass
A: Dark brownish burgundy color with some softer tones accentuating the borders of the glass. Pretty dense looking with no clearness to it. Topped with a thin and short-lived khaki froth. Fairly clean on the way down with minimal stick noted.
S: Smells of dark malts and plum like dark fruits. Plenty of juicy malt goodness here with some date sugars presently sweet. I get a very light dusting of Belgian yeast characterized by some banana and cardamom spices. Fairly nice and inviting.
T: Loads of dark fruity malts and dark sugars give notes of dried fig and prune followed by some understated yeasty notes. There is a hint of banana peel with a touch of clove and cardamom type spices there and it becomes almost vinous at times. I get some mild coffee roast hidden underneath with a low amount of actual bitterness to the beer. Finishes out with some earthy minerals and a warming alcohol spice. Well balanced and disguised that it be. Not too shabby for this Abby.
M: Thick and full bodied with a seemingly lower amount of carbonation. Light syrupy feel yet still maintains a decent froth on the tongue with a soft drying note at the finish. Warming with alcohol upon exhalation.
D: This Widow is sweet not bitter yet somewhat dark and mysterious. Not a bad take on the style but a pretty far reach from the greats. Societe always has great balance in their beers which holds true here but probably not one I would go for often.
